Imagine the Possibilities!

This is very random, but I think we are going to enjoy it!

I was making some craft stick word families for Mary Helen, and was trying to figure how we could keep them separated . I decided these small bathroom cups would be perfect, but I didn't know how I could make them stand up. I pulled out this foam board from some other project and hot glued the cups in rows. As I was glueing, I thought of all the fun things I could do with the board!



Here's the board ~
use for patterns (can use pom-poms, beans, noodles, etc)
use for sorting



for word families
you can also use them for alphabetical order, sight words, adding, etc.

That is a really neat idea. I can imagine hand eye coordination with tossing too!

And oh the sorting possibilities!! What a cool board with use after use! Might help that I love lime green too.....

Thanks for sharing!

Hey!!
I don't know where I've been. I thought I clicked on Follow Blog button, and surely thought it would update me, but apparently, I am not actually following and NOT getting notice when you update. So...I have to play catch-up. Hmmm...
Oh, I am thinking a June visit will be in order. It obviously won't be this weekend. Boo...
Hope you are doing great!!
